Film review: Is Jurassic World a monster hit?

Photo Source: bbc.co.uk

It’s 22 years since Spielberg’s original adventure, but does the fourth movie in the series have teeth? Critic Nicholas Barber gives his verdict.
Jurassic Park is open for business – and it’s about time, too. It was always a let-down that the first two sequels to Steven Spielberg’s original film were set in an uninhabited jungle environment, rather than the fully-functioning theme park promised by the title. Partly it was disappointing because a new setting would have moved the story on, whereas the sequels were essentially remakes of 1993’s blockbuster. But mainly it was disappointing because it made no sense. I mean, why hadn’t the park opened its doors? True, it had had a few teething problems, mostly involving Tyrannosaurus Rex teeth, but come on: an island stocked with real, live dinosaurs? Who wouldn’t want to go there?

Roman Polanski has been given one of Poland's top film awards in Krakow, where he is also facing a US extradition request over 1977 charges of having sex with a 13-year-old girl.
The director was handed the Against the Current award at the Off Camera film festival on Friday.
The 81-year-old, who grew up in the city during World War Two, said he was "extremely touched" by the honour.
He is due back in court in Krakow for another hearing on 22 May.
Polanski has been wanted by US police since 1977, when he fled the country fearing a lengthy jail sentence after being charged with having sex with a 13-year-old girl.
The Rosemary's Baby director was held in Switzerland in 2009 after travelling to Zurich to pick up a prize at another film festival, but the extradition bid failed and he was eventually allowed to return to his home in France.

The New 'Jurassic World' Poster Makes It Totally Look Like A Rom-Com

Photo Source: huffingtonpost.com

This summer ... Love finds a way.
"Jurassic World" director Colin Trevorrow tweeted a new poster for the much-anticipated "Jurassic Park" sequel on Friday, showing the film's park operations manager Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) staring deep into the eyes of the Indominus rex.
With a new trailer debuting on Monday, we'll soon find out even more about the Chris Pratt-helmed sequel -- including whether or not a love story lies within. But based on this poster, we're pretty sure that "Jurassic World" is really a rom-com and the only sparks that will fly will be between Dearing and this ferocious hybrid dino.
So, with that in mind, we went ahead and tweaked the new poster to better reflect what this movie is clearly about:

A Mumbai cinema has reversed its decision to stop screening an iconic Bollywood movie after a 20-year run following an outcry from fans.
The cinema, Maratha Mandir, will now continue to show the film just days after it stopped showing it, saying it was no longer commercially viable.
Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, a romantic drama, was first shown in October 1995.
The cinema said it received hundreds of calls from broken hearted fans within hours of deciding to end the run.
Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge translates as "The Brave-Hearted Will Take The Bride" and is popularly known as DDLJ. It follows two Indians living in Britain and the obstacles they face as they fall in love.

British actor Eddie Redmayne has won the best actor Oscar for The Theory of Everything, while Julianne Moore picked up best actress for Still Alice.
Redmayne thanked his "staggering partner in crime", co-star Felicity Jones, and his "ferocious but incredibly kind director James Marsh".
Dark comedy Birdman won best film and best director for Mexican film-maker Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.
It also won best cinematography and best original screenplay.
The film sees Michael Keaton play a former movie superhero actor, who hopes to revive his washed-up career by putting on a Broadway play.
Moore used her speech to raise awareness for Alzheimer's disease - in Still Alice, she plays a 50-year-old who has early on-set Alzheimer's.
"I'm so happy, I'm thrilled that we were able to shine a light on Alzheimer's disease," she said.
